What's your guilty pleasure? Dark Chocolate and ice cream both happen to be my weaknesses.
How do you prepare for a night out on the town? Well I’ve found that college equals forever changing plans. As long as I’ve got a great group of friends by my side I don’t worry too much about the preparation. The spontaneous unplanned nights out on the town have a history of turning out the most fun and memorable.
What's in your fridge right now? Currently left over chipotle, homemade beef enchiladas, and fruits and veggies. I love food, cooking, and eating, as do my 3 wonderful roommates, so our fridge is usually stocked to the brim, or overflowing with new concoctions.
If you were a car, what kind would you be and why? Hmmm… I think I would be a steel blue Jeep Wrangler because it’s all American, adventurous, spunky, and down-to-earth.
When you see your crush on campus how do you react? I will smile and be approachable. If the situation allows I’ll start up a conversation, but I’m definitely an old fashioned girl and usually won’t make the first move unless I know the guy is interested.
Craziest college experience so far? This is tough! I can’t pick just one memory during the last 4 years at my beloved Texas A&M! This year my best friends and I created a pretty wonderful senior bucket list of crazy things to do before we graduate, so let’s just say I’ve made some awesome one-of-a-kind memories checking those off the list.
Describe your dream man: I’ll take a Tim Tebow please!
If you had to listen to only one song for the rest of your life, what would it be? Oh gosh! I don’t know how the world would go round without music so can’t imagine only listening to one song for the rest of my life. I think I would get depressed. But if I had to pick just one, it would probably be I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston or Ben Rector’s remake of it is pretty great too. It never fails to put me in a good mood and has lots of priceless memories tied to it that were spent singing at the top of my lungs and dancing with my family and friends.
What are your plans after graduation? After seeing the incredible impact speech therapists have made in the lives of some of my very close family and friends, I have known that I wanted to pursue a future career in speech pathology since I was a little girl. I cannot imagine a profession more fulfilling then being able to help, love, and bring joy to people daily. I will be attending the University of Texas at Dallas starting this summer after graduating from Texas A&M in May and am very interested in focusing my research on cleft palate, autism, and developmental delays in young children.
